Welcome to the Century View Website
Hello. We have been having a challenging winter. On the positive side we are assured of fresh water supplies through this summer.
If you haven't been to the viewing deck in Heron Road do so without delay. The Retainer Pond has never been so full. The poor Spoonbills and Herons that spent months making their nests are all displaced now. The water rose too high.
The Egyptian geese and their goslings are a sight to see as they glide elegantly in the water. The Red Bishops sparkle with colour. The coots perform shallow dives and show just how territorial they are. They perform regular mock attacks just above the surface of the water. The sacred ibises are wonderful to behold as squadron after squadron make their landing each evening. One resident counted as many as 600 birds in the colony. The Herons and the Spoonbills will have to start all over again. And the cormorant has such sleek and attractive features. Have you seen one sunning itself?
The calendar says that spring 2008 is here. The weather doesn't agree. Anyway, the best time of year will soon be here. We tried in the past for all of us to do something collectively but there was no purchase from our fellow residents. We would like to arrange a Spring Walk on Sunday 5 October 2008. Are there any takers to help organise the event? And, is there anyone in Century View that has any interest in a fun morning and will turn up to participate? Please get in touch with Farouk.
Rholeen Jordaan is keen to start a Social Bridge Club. Her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Her cell number is 0833272774.
Finally, I am keen to be in touch with those who wish to have greater social interaction. I have been told that in our neighbouring complexes residents do not use the common amenities that are available to them. Are you of that view or would you like Century View to have amenities where people can interact socially and where children can participate in organised activities? If you have any views in this regard email Farouk Cassim at: email@example.com.
